SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice informs the public that HUD has submitted to OMB a request for approval of the information collection described in Section A. The Federal Register notice that solicited public comment on the information collection for a period of 60 days was published on October 9, 2018 at 83 FR 50676. A. Overview of Information Collection Title of Information Collection: Public Housing Agency (PHA) 5-Year and Annual Plan. OMB Approval Number: 2577–0226. Type of Request: Revision of currently approved collection. Form Number(s): HUD–50075–5Y, HUD–50075–ST, HUD–50075–SM, HUD–50075–HCV, HUD–50075–HP, HUD–50075–MTW, HUD–50077–CR, HUD–50077–SL, HUD–50077–CRT–SM, and HUD–50077–ST–HCV–HP. Description of the need for the information and proposed use: Under the provisions of Section 3507(a)(1)(D) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a request to review and approve the information collection listed below. The Public Housing Agency (PHA) Plan was created by section 5A of the United States Housing Act of 1937 (42 U.S.C. 1437c–1). There are two different PHA Plans: The Five-Year Plan and the Annual Plan. The Five-Year Plan describes the agency’s mission, longrange goals and objectives for achieving its mission over a five-year period. The Annual PHA Plan is a comprehensive guide to PHA policies, programs, operations, and strategies for meeting local housing needs and goals. This revision integrates the MTW Supplement to the Annual PHA Plan process for PHAs that join MTW under the 2016 Appropriations Act (i.e., MTW Expansion). The PHA Plans informs HUD, residents, and the public of the PHA’s mission for serving the needs of low, very low-income, and extremely lowincome families and its strategy for addressing those needs. This information helps provide accountability to the local community VerDate Sep<11>2014 23:25 Dec 10, 2020 Jkt 253001 for how PHAs spend their funding and implement their policies. Also, PHA Plans allow HUD to monitor the performance of programs and the performance of public housing agencies that administer them. This proposed information collection was previously published in the Federal Register on October 9, 2018 (FR 83, 50676) and allowed 60-days for public comment. It should be noted that all forms except for the Moving to Work (MTW) Supplement were published in the Federal Register on October 30, 2019 (FR 84, 58167) for a 30-day public comment period. The four public comments received for the documents included in that notice were addressed at that time. The MTW Supplement was not included in this publication due to revisions that were needed as part of ongoing work on the MTW Operations Notice, which has now been published. The purpose of this 30-day notice is to respond to public comments received during the 60-day public comment period on the MTW Supplement and to allow for the 30-day public comment period for the MTW Supplement. Respondents (i.e. affected public): Local, Regional and State Body Corporate Politic Public Housing Agencies (PHAs) Governments. Estimated Number of Respondents: 3,780. Estimated Number of Responses: 4,832 (Annual Plan: 1,152 and 5 Year Plan: 3,780). Frequency of Response: Every five years for all PHAs, annually for all PHAs except HERA Qualified PHAs. Average Hours per Response: 6.33 hrs. Total Estimated Burdens: 14,613.74. 80137 (5) Ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. HUD encourages interested parties to submit comment in response to these questions. Authority Section 3507 of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 44 U.S.C. Chapter 35. D. Overview of Significant Changes Made to the HUD–50075–MTW, MTW Supplement to the Annual PHA Plan The MTW Supplement has been updated to reflect the final MTW Operations Notice, which was published in the Federal Register (FR 85, 53444) on August 28, 2020, and public comments received during the 60-day Federal Register public comment period. A copy of the draft HUD–50075 MTW can be obtained per the information provided earlier in this notice under ‘‘For further information’’, or on the HUD Moving to Work website at https://www.hud.gov/mtw. The other forms in the PHA Plan data collection were published in the Federal Register on October 30, 2019 for the 30-day public comment period and, therefore, are not included in this 30day Federal Register notice. Colette Pollard, Department Reports Management Officer, Office of the Chief Information Officer. [FR Doc. 2020–27276 Filed 12–10–20; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4210–67–P B.

This helps us assess the impact of our information collection requirements and minimize the public’s reporting burden. It also helps the public understand our information collection requirements and provide the requested data in the desired format. We are soliciting comments on the proposed ICR that is described below. We are especially interested in public comment addressing the following issues: (1) Is the collection necessary to the proper functions of the USGS; (2) will this information be processed and used in a timely manner; (3) is the estimate of burden accurate; (4) how might the USGS enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (5) how might the USGS minimize the burden of this collection on the respondents, including through the use of information technology.

Abstract: The Hydrography Maintenance Portal (HMP) is a website used by trained editors to access data from the USGS National Hydrography Dataset (NHD) or Watershed Boundary Dataset (WBD) national databases for the purpose of editing the data to update, correct, or otherwise improve it. HMP is used by federal employees of the USGS National Geospatial Program (NGP) and VerDate Sep<11>2014 23:25 Dec 10, 2020 Jkt 253001 state partners with which USGS has a signed Stewardship Program Memorandums of Understanding (MOU). USGS employees use the HMP as their primary means of accessing NHD and WBD for data management. State partners use the HMP to check out areas of the NHD and/or WBD to perform edits and updates to the data using their specialized, local knowledge of the streams in their areas. These data contributions are very important to maintaining the datasets as A–16 National Geospatial Data Assets, as well as helping to prevent duplication of data by supporting editing of one primary dataset by many. Using HMP, NHD or WBD data is ‘‘checked out’’ from a national database for a select area. No other editor can check out the data for an area when the data is already checked out. The HMP is not used to directly edit or submit (‘‘check in’’) data to the national database. Data checked out with HMP must be edited with USGS hydrography editing tools, such as the WBD Edit Tool or the NHD Update Tool. To check in data, editors must use the USGS hydrography editing tools. An HMP user must take special training from USGS staff before they can register for an HMP user account. After training, users register an HMP user account with their business contact information including first/last name, business phone, state, and work organization. Registered users are then assigned check out permissions by the HMP administrators. HMP administrators are a limited group of the USGS NHD/WBD Partner Support Team. HMP user accounts are necessary because they allow HMP administrators to provide assistance if needed, to coordinate production needs, and enable tracking on the editing history for the datasets through reporting. HMP has reporting functions to generate production statistics. These reports detail active and previous checkout histories within specified date ranges. The business contact information of the users who checked out the data are visible on these reports. Any registered user can generate reports with HMP. HMP reports are frequently used to coordinate essential production needs between states, or between USGS staff and state partners. The reports allow USGS staff to contact partners if there is a problem with their data or allow partners to contact partners in others states to confirm if editing work is planned or occurring in an adjacent watershed.
